Can i appoint a contractor without a letter of good standing??

I am dispute with my colleagues because they say it was supposed to be specified on the RFQ that it is a requirement, now they require proof from on OHS act that state that i cannot contract or allow someone to continue working at our site without that letter


Regards

Hi there

Section 89 of the COID Act would be applicable.

89. Mandators and Contractors



(1)

(a) If a person (the mandator ) in the course of or for the purposes of his business enters into an agreement with any other person (the contractor ) for the execution by or under the supervision of the contractor of the whole or any part of any work undertaken by the mandator , the contractor shall. in respect of his employees employed in the execution of the work concerned, register as an employer in accordance with the provisions of this Act and pay the necessary assessments.

(b) If a contractor fails so to register or pay any assessment , the said employees of the contractor shall be deemed to be the employees of the mandator , and the mandator shall pay the assessments in respect of those employees.
